Enhance Lectora e-Learning Courses with Embedded Objects

Lectora® e-Learning software is an adaptable tool with flexible parameters that you can use to create almost anything you need for your e-Learning course content or training. The native functionality of Lectora can be built on, as demonstrated in Mike Raines and Damian Liska’s session, Leveraging Lectora’s Objects and Interfaces to Communicate with Embedded Objects, at the Lectora User Conference.
